Didnt you do an article a while back where a lenovo worked with Win7?

Yes. All this release means is that Asus already has full driver support for the products posted. Virtually any hardware that works with Vista will work with Win7.

it's marketing... that's all lol Most stuff already work with Win7. This is just going to confuse the less informed, because now people are going to think other stuff WONT work with 7 and they HAVE to get this or something else that "Supports Windows 7 RC"
